About Privy

Privy is the premier subscription-based SaaS platform and community that Real Estate agents and investors engage with in their Real Estate investment property journey. Privy curates and analyzes massive amounts of property, mortgage, rental and Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data and sends profitable deals automatically to its user base.

The Opportunity

We’ve proven our model and are looking to build our core product and engineering teams in the coming months to scale our application and take it to the next level. We’re looking for talented engineers that are interested in a ground-floor opportunity at a profitable startup that has achieved product market fit. Our technical challenges will give you interesting problems to solve across a variety of big data, real-time search, mapping, and interfacing with third party APIs and data streams.

What You’ll Do

As a Staff Software Engineer (Elixir) at Privy, you’ll be responsible for building new features, APIs, maintaining the existing code, and scaling the application and infrastructure to meet customer demand. You’ll make architectural and design decisions that are implemented with quality code based on your deep experience building production SaaS applications at high scale. You are self-directed, a good communicator, and collaborative when needed to seek out the optimal solution to a problem.

Candidates for this position will have real experience writing code and a solid understanding of computer science principles with your interests and career experience primarily focused on the front end visual and design aspects of the web application stack.

In addition to a multitude of technical challenges that you will solve, you’ll be one of the early members of our engineering team, giving you the opportunity to help establish our engineering culture, processes, and architectural solutions as we grow the team for the years ahead. You will be called upon to lead teams, and there will be both technical and managerial roles to grow into as we scale.

Requirements / Qualifications

  • You’ve designed and written back-end APIs in a modern systems language and have gone well beyond basic CRUD and scaffolding, having written significant business logic to integrate systems and process data.
  • You have written user-facing front-end pages in a modern reactive javascript / typescript framework that consume back-end APIs and services in a dynamic, scalable, and secure manner.
  • Experience generating performant and accurate real-time search results based on large data sets using ElasticSearch, PostgreSQL and other database and search engine technologies.
  • Minimum of 5 years software engineering experience building and releasing SaaS software products to production.
  • You are confident in your abilities to model a problem domain, design database schemas, and deploy reliable services on modern cloud infrastructure.
  • You believe in documentation, testing your code, maintaining reproducible development environments, and automation, all which enable scale and quality.
  • Experienced in fast paced Agile scrum development environments and can mentor and provide feedback to junior developers.
